Guy Ritchie has an estimated net worth of $100 million
Guy Ritchie is an English screenwriter, producer, and film director with an estimated net worth of $100 million. Ritchie’s notable films are Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Revolver. He is 5’11” and weighs 185 pounds. Guy Stuart Ritchie was born on September 10, 1968 in Hatfield, England. His father was Captain John Vivian Ritchie, a serviceman and advertising executive. A rambunctious youth, Ritchie was into drugs and girls and was expelled from the exclusive Stanbridge Earls School when he was 15. In 1995, he directed a short film titled The Hard Case and decided he would pursue a job as a director.
With the help of his father and some connections in the film industry, Ritchie was able to secure funding for his debut feature-length film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which was positively received in England in 1998 leading to distribution around the world. As well as being a commercial and critical success, the movie introduced audiences to future stars like Jason Statham, Nick Moran and Dexter Fletcher. With the leverage of his original work, Ritchie’s second film, Snatch, was even more successful in 2000 and boasted an all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Dennis Farina and Benecio del Toro. Ritchie’s next picture, Swept Away, starring his wife, Madonna, bombed, and he experienced an early career lull with his next two films, Revolver and RocknRolla also underperforming.
Despite some setbacks, Ritchie was back on top of the film world with the release of Sherlock Holmes in 2009, which brought in over $520 million worldwide. The sequel, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, was even more successful. Soon after his first commercial success, Ritchie met music icon Madonna and the two were married in 2000. They have two children but were divorced in 2008. Ritchie is reported to have gotten up to $96 million in the divorce settlement. He has two more children with current girlfriend, Jacqui Ainsley.
